Dark Horse have announced details of CREEPING, a brand new original graphic novel from writers Zack Keller and Mike Richardson and artist Doug Wheatley, set for release this October.
Here’s the official blurb:
“Creeping” is sweeping across social media—a dangerous online trend that dares participants to spend the night at a frightening location—from crumbling cemeteries to derelict morgues. As more people join in, the competition increases—who can outdo the latest scary destination? One group of thrill-seekers is determined to find the most terrifying place in the world—and an abandoned medieval fortress-turned-asylum fits the bill, but they soon realize they are in for more than they bargained for.
Speaking about the story, Richardson said “I caught the end of a news clip about college kids staying overnight in an abandoned house and that got me thinking about a new story—a fad in which people sought out the scariest places to camp while live-streaming themselves. The fad, “creeping”, turns into a competition as each group seeks to outdo the last. What could be more frightening than an abandoned asylum avoided by locals for 100 years? Of course, this location has a secret…”
The Creeping graphic novel will be in comic shops on October 13, 2021, and in book stores on October 26, 2021.
